8 years ago I installed my first standalone GitLab server for my development team. Since then I've actively used the product. In July 2021, while reading the docs I saw a possible improvement, instead of ignore it I decided to post an MR. Since then I started actively contributing to the GitLab documentation and handbook. I also started contributing on the code and implemented some improvements into the codebase and UI. Then I contributed to the Spanish translation and now I'm a Spanish proofreader. I participated in a few hackathons where I won one of the first places. All because I love the product, the philosophy of the company, its values and the community that has been built around it. I hope I can keep doing it even more.

In September 2021, I started actively contributing to the GitLab documentation and went through a full documentation cleanup.
I joined the GitLab Heroes in November that year. Over time, I also started contributing on the code and implemented some
improvements into the codebase.
I started contributing to GitLab in March of 2022, couldn't stop from there and August of the same year I joined the GitLab Heroes.
The reason I joined was to improve the time tracking features offered by GitLab, but I ended up contributing
to various other areas of the product.
User of GitLab for 5 years, I'm in charge of my company's GitLab platform (~10k users) and to help projects deploy following DevOps principles.
Since Jan. 2023, I'm GitLab Hero as I often give talks, workshops and/or write articles about GitLab & its cool features.

I have been using GitLab as a DevSecOps tool platform for several years. I have deployed two GitLab environments and utilized various features such as
Source Code Management, CICD, Container Registry, Package Registry, Pages, IaC, Kubernetes Management. I'm delighted to have joined the GitLab Heroes community.
I enjoy discussing many cool features of GitLab with everyone through presentations, open days, and sharing sessions.

I have been using GitLab for 3 years and I started my GitLab journey from a GitLab challenge on twitter. I won some goodies and meanwhile came to know how to use GitLab. Currently I am organizing GitLab Meetup Bangladesh and organizing various events.
Stumbled upon a post on Twitter about GitLab Hackathons back in November 2022, participated by making some documentation
fixes and became a regular contributor and joined Gitlab Heroes in the subsequent year.
